Found September 19, 2012 on Silver and Black Daily:
Here we are again, Raider Nation. It was another agonizing week and another embarrassing loss for the Oakland Raiders. The only positive to take away from this week is that the Raiders were not the only AFC West team to lose in week 2, nor are they the only winless team in the division. Let’s [...]

Spencer and Barnes to miss time; Raiders work out 2 CBs and Andre Carter

For the second straight week, not only the Oakland Raiders came away with a loss, but also with important additions to the injury report. Right tackle Khalif Barnes and cornerback Shawntae Spencer, both starters, were not able to finish the game against Miami. Barnes has a groin injury and Spencer, a right ankle sprain. According [...]

Raiders sign CB Ross and 2 for practice squad; McClain concussed

In the wake of Shawntae Spencer’s right ankle sprain, the Oakland Raiders signed this tuesday cornerback Brandian Ross, in addition to filling two practice squad spots with CB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and DT Vaughn Meatoga. Also, head coach Dennis Allen announced that linebacker Rolando McClain suffered a concussion against the Dolphins and might not be able to [...]

Tommy Kelly Restructures Contract

With very little fanfare, it was reported over the weekend that the Oakland Raiders had restructured Tommy Kelly’s contract to free up cap space for the 2012 season. Bryan McIntyre first reported it on Yahoo’s Shutdown Corner although the Raiders have yet to officially announce the move. This is a move that had been much [...]

Raiders setting new marks for ineptitude

Oakland, CA. Fans who follow the Oakland Raiders had to feel a sense of optimism heading into the 2012 season. For the first time in many years, the QB situation seemed to be solidified, with the mid-season signing of Carson Palmer last season. The team finished 2011 at 8-8, and showed at times they could compete at a fairly high level. The offense was bringing back stud running...

Raiders Wednesday Injury Report – McClain, Barnes, Spencer & Francies DNP

The Wednesday practice participation injury report for the Oakland Raiders is now in and it shows that tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), cornerback Shawntae Spencer (foot), cornerback Coye Francies (concussion) and linebacker Rolando McClain (ankle/concussion) did not practice. Spencer is expected to miss the game Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, while McClain has still not been...

Oakland Raiders: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 31 (+0) Record: 0-2 I called this team overrated before the season and said they were one of the worst teams in the league and an ugly 35-13 loss to the Dolphins is making that look pretty good. The new regime has a lot of promise, but they inherited a mess, an 8 win team (with a Pythagorean Expectation of 6 wins for stat nerds) that was above the cap and didn’t have...

Fantasy Football Drafter’s Remorse: Time To Bench Chris Johnson

Like many other fellow fantasy owners out there I too drafted Chris Johnson and have since second-guessed that pick. On most draft boards Johnson was a top 5 back, who was coming off a preseason that made everyone believe he was back in 2010 form when he ran for 1,364 yards and 11 touchdowns. Unfortunately that hasn’t been the case thus far in 2012, and Johnson has been putting...

Pittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders: Week 3 NFL Pick

Oakland Raiders (0-2) at Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1) Before the season, I made a list of underrated and overrated teams, with the intent of betting them (or against them) until the odds makers caught up and I was proven wrong. This approach has worked well for me because I’m 10-4-2 ATS on games involving those teams. One thing I was dead on about was that the Raiders would be one...

Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: Oakland Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins

Oakland Raiders – 13, Miami Dolphins – 35It certainly looks like the Raiders are going to be behind a lot, which means a lot of garbage time yards and scores for Carson Palmer (380 total yards, 1 TD, 1 INT).  He’s going to be worth starting at some point, and very well could be a top 15 QB this year in terms of fantasy stats.Like Weeden and Luck, Ryan Tannehill (214 yards...

Roethlisberger & Seymour Have Laughed Off 2010 Punch

The last time that the Pittsburgh Steelers faced the Oakland Raiders they handled them easily at Heinz Field. The 35-3 win was not without incident though as Raiders defensive end Richard Seymour was ejected for an open-handed punch to the face of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger just seconds after he threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders with just under...

Raiders Running Backs Are More Of Threat Out Of The Backfield Than In It

I have pointed out the problems that the Pittsburgh Steelers have had running the ball on first and second down through their first two games of the 2012 season, but their opponent in week 3, the Oakland Raiders, have had their problems as well on the early run downs. So far against the San Diego Chargers and the Miami Dolphins the Raiders running backs have 29 carries on first...

Final Week 2 Observations

The mood certainly is different on the off day this week after the Dolphins' impressive 35-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders in Sunday's home opener at Sun Life Stadium. Before the Dolphins begin their preparations for Sunday's game against the Jets, let's take one final look at the Oakland game.
